    Pros

    Work-Life balance
    Attracts self-motivated people
    Promotes internal transfers - opportunity to gain expertise and skill sets in areas you don't have past experience with

    Cons

    percent increases are based off of the salary you started with. So as you grow in the organization, all of your promotions/increases will always be incremental, based on what your incoming salary was. If you came in with a low paying salary, you will always be on the low end of the pay scale, no matter how much you grow.
